I'm just wondering what's the price for a 24 pack of BMC where you're from.

In Quebec, there's a government monopoly (SAQ) for liquor stores (any hard liquor must be sold in their stores. Beer and cheap wine can be sold in supermarkets and corner stores) that also has laws about the lowest possible price for a 24 pack. And that is 22.34$ (all taxes included) usually for Bud, Labatt, Coors Light and Molson. (You can include tax or not, just say if you did or didn't).

MOD EDIT: Sig only takes up 6 lines now. Fermenting: Apple cider x 2, Doppelbock, Red, Oatmeal Stout, West Coast IPA x 2
Bottle conditioning: RIS
Keg conditioning: La Fin du Monde clone
On tap: Maudite clone, Double Munchen, Oktoberfeast, Oktoberfest Pilsner
Planning: Brewed in 2011: 22 (2010: 15, 2009: 29, 2008: 21, 2007: 1)
Wine made in 2010: 6 kits (2009: 19, 2008: 30)

I rarely see cases anymore, just 30pks. Bud is usually around $20 plus tax and deposit, Miller, PBR, Coors, etc. is typically around $12-$15

Here in southeast NC, a 12pack of Miller High Life goes for $5.99 in cans and $6.49 in bottles. Bud and Coors go for more, like $1 more for cans and $1.50 more for bottles. That's without tax. Liquor is sold in State controlled ABC stores.

I have no idea what BMC goes for here (I haven't purchased any in years) but I know a 24 of Alexander Keiths IPA (bottles, not much better than BMC) goes for $35CAD including taxes and deposit.

Here mostly 12 or 24 packs of BMC, we only get 30's on the cheap brands... 12's are usually at least 9.99, and 24 packs are usually about 16.99.... 18 packs are catching on now too

30 of High Life or Keystone is 13.99 or higher here.
